Prayer in times of fear

I really appreciate the work of Eddie Askew. He is a wonderful poet and author. He wrote a lovely prayer in his book 'Facing the Storm' - this is the end of the prayer:

"Lord, help me to sweep away the sand of fear...
blown, hard and persistently,
heaping unbelief in drifts across my life.
Help me to feel
in the prompting of new growth, 
the excitement, the hope and tension,
of your Spirit's purposes.
And when I don't understand
just where it's leading to, 
help me to welcome it."

Proverbs 29:25 - "Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe."

Living in Grace
